December and January can be an excellent time to sell your home. Putting your home on the market at this time of year may not be the conventional way of thinking. It will, however, allow your property to be shown to the most motivated buyers.
In the real estate market, many sellers wait until spring to place their property on the market because “spring is the selling season.” Although spring does bring seasonal increases in sales activity, it also brings a flood of new listings on the market. The local multiple listing service inventory skyrockets between April and June, which means more competition to the home seller.
While mid-winter sellers may have to put up with some inconveniences during this time of year, they can be assured that buyers are serious because the holidays weed out those who are just looking.
